FASTER, BETTER CARE. LESS CORRUPTION. MORE FUNDING
The Problem: Over 300,000 veterans died waiting for care. Corruption and incompetence were excused. Politicians in Washington have done too little too slowly to fix it.
The Plan: Ensure veterans have convenient access to the best quality care.
The Trump Plan Will:
“Ensure our veterans get the care they need wherever and whenever they need it. No more long drives. No more waiting for backlogs. No more excessive red tape. Just the care and support they earned with their service to our country.
Support the whole veteran, not just their physical health care, but also by addressing their invisible wounds, investing in our service members’ post-active duty success, transforming the VA to meet the needs of 21st century service members, and better meeting the needs of our female veterans.
Make the VA great again by firing the corrupt and incompetent VA executives who let our veterans down, by modernizing the VA, and by empowering the doctors and nurses to ensure our veterans receive the best care available in a timely manner.
Increase funding for psychological damage related injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury and suicide prevention services to address our veterans’ invisible wounds.
Increase funding for job training and placement services (including incentives for companies hiring veterans), educational support and business loans.
Update the VA to more suitably meet the needs of 21st century service members.
Better support our women veterans. Under the Trump plan, every VA hospital in the country will be fully equipped with OBGYN and other women’s health services.”
